As we said previously, our plans for Sengoku Jidai aren’t over with the release of Gempei Kassen. The developers from Byzantine Games are working on a new, bigger expansion: Mandate of Heaven!

This expansion, larger in scope than Gempei Kassen, features China in the 16th and 17th centuries – the Middle Kingdom is in crisis and up for grabs. The Ming Emperor has lost the Mandate of Heaven, and his rule is weak. Peasant rebellions, disloyal governors and foreign invasions threaten to topple him. The time for talking is over – now weapons, strength of arm and clever strategies will decide the outcome of the war to come, and the winner might find himself at the head of the largest empire in Asia…

The Mandate of Heaven DLC brings players of Sengoku Jidai to another "country at war". The expansion contains four dynamic historical campaigns set in the 16th and 17th centuries. These chronicle the decline of China's Ming Dynasty and its conquest by the Manchu Qing Dynasty. It also includes the Mandate of Heaven sandbox campaign that enables players to freely choose the opposing forces fighting for supremacy over the Chinese mainland and Mongolian steppes. It also includes four new factions and many new units!

Last but not least: the expansion is about to enter its beta testing phase. We need your help to find bugs and we’re interested in hearing your feedback, so please feel free to apply, all help will be greatly appreciated. Click here to apply for the Beta!

Thank you, and stay tuned for more news!

The map is of course now based on China.

Some campaigns have special rules that are not part of the original release.

In Mandate of Heaven sandbox, you chose your side and the opponent. A third neutral side can be at play if both active sides do not occupy the capital at the start. Then like the Sengoku Jidai Sandbox, you can gift them to join you but only the province (not the whole faction) will join you. You can also now invade them and conduct sieges. Territory gained from neutrals can be useful since it allows the player to recruit units that are not native to their core provinces. This gives the Mongols and early Jirchens much needed foot troops for example.

There are also small tweaks to AI campaign behavior, etc that made its way to the original campaigns a part of the patches.
